Born in the heart of central New York, alternative blues rock duo Castle Creek has hooked audiences from Portland, Maine to Austin, Texas. Comprised of award-winning lead vocalist Kim Monroe and Berklee trained lead guitarist Chris Eves, Castle Creek skillfully shares lyrics and instrumentals in a manner that resonates with crowds big and small. With hard-hitting vocals and searing blues riffs, Castle Creek furthers the form established by the Tedeschi Trucks Band and the Black Crowes. Between the two of them, Kim and Chris can claim multiple EPs, studio albums, Syracuse Area Music Awards, session work, film appearances, and tours with national acts such as Justincase and American Idol. Having toured successfully with their most recent 3-song EP, Castle Creek’s debut studio album, “The Only Life”, is slated for release November 2014. Won 2015’s SAMMY SAMMY Award for Best Blues Band.
Hailing from Sidney, NY, the Woodshed Prophets are a quartet of bearded wild men, hell-bent on world domination or self-destruction, whichever comes first. The Prophets primarily play original material, a unique blend of rock and country (or “power twang” as they’ve been tagged by friends and fans). Their second studio album, Nowhere But Down, was released in September 2013.

The Old Main
Hailing from the foothills of the Adirondack mountains in upstate New York, The Old Main has drawn favorable comparisons to bands such as The Avett Brothers,The Band, and Dawes while retaining a sound and style uniquely their own. They’ve been called Folk/Rock, Adirondack Folk, foot stomping Folk, alt-Americana, and all sorts of other things. But regardless of the adjective and/or categorization used, they’ve developed a voice all their own through their high energy live performances and the raw acoustic sound created through their use of acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, drums, and ringing vocal harmonies.
